Industry sources say the efficiency of converting solar power to electricity should be at least seven percent for commercialization, which up until now has never been achieved.
The researchers plan to double the cell’s efficiency and commercialize the technology by 2012. The plastic solar cell is rated to have 6.5 percent efficiency which is sufficiently high for commercial products.
This innovation sounds promising to me and it will be good to see these solar cells making its way into common place consumer goods! Go Korea !
